mindful consumption conscious

Last night I dreamt I met Tim Ferriss. I was sitting down on a park bench reading a book about Vagabonding that he recommends, and there he came… strolling along with his little beanie. I waved at him, and showed him proudly what I was reading, and then almost immediately following his approving nod, I convinced him ...

I’ve been taking advantage of the great outdoors while in Seattle. Mountaineering (sort of), bird watching, and general frolicking in nature. It’s been my saving grace as I pore through the bounteous boxes of my childhood, attempting to further Marie Kondo my life. Taking breaks from chucking plastic toys and stuffed animals into Goodwill bags, to commune ...

Let’s talk about nostalgia. So many of my minimalism efforts are thwarted by…  nostalgia. Where does this sensation come from, and why does it have such power over me? Now I realize that I’m somewhat of an extreme case. Just to give you an idea of Ann on the Nostalgia Meter: I listen to old music ...

Turns out the true test of how far you’ve come on your spiritual path and “personal development journey” is how unleashed you become when you find out your work didn’t save. It’s in moments like these that I humble myself and start googling Vipassana retreats. Must. find. inner. peace. Om? Shanti? Bloody *&%$#! There will always ...

Late nights. Bountiful brunches. Too many cream puffs from that new vegan pâtisserie. (Have you heard about that one?) ? Oh man. We get it. And we know that sometimes you need to detox that bod’ and get yourself legitimately back on track. So we’ve got you covered — and, don’t worry, it doesn’t involve imbibing copious ...
